'A Woodland Glade', from Constable's late period, estimated £8000.<br />
<br />
Four previously unknown drawings by celebrated English artist John Constable have been found gathering dust in a cardboard box.<br />
<br />
The small sketches belonged to the late playwright Christopher Fry and were found by his son Tam Fry while clearing out his father's home in West Sussex.<br />
<br />
Mr Fry hung two of the pen and ink drawings on his bedroom wall either side of his bed for several decades.<br />
<br />
The four small drawings have a combined vase of £25,000. They will be sold by Chiswick Auction in west London in March.
